Witness Statement
UFO sighting 22 October 10.25
This is about the strange experience I had last night. Put simply I went out to look at the meteor shower that was supposed to happen last night as I love shooting stars. I did however see UFO and afterwards wrote down all I saw immediately after the event mainly because twenty years ago I saw a UFO but failed to write about what I saw and made a promise to myself if anything happened again like this I would write it down with times and a description and time line and where it came from and went to so that in the future I would not doubt myself about what I observed.Here is my true story as I see it using the notes and drawings I made within 10 minutes of the UFO disappearing. I do know others will find this all hard to believe but I do not care I know what I saw. I saw an unidentified flying object in the night sky the object was made of small white lights in the shape of a 2 d chevron which I drew 2 minutes after the sighting.

Before the event and weather conditions

I was watching UEFA on BT sport and decided to go onto my patio to watch for shooting stars I paused the television, put on a coat, hat and gloves as it was a cold clear night. I also moved a patiio chair to a good position to maximise the amount of night sky I could see. I also put the back of the chair into a reclining position so I would be comfortable I did think about my binoculars but decided not to use them because shooting stars come and go so quickly you could blink and miss them and binoculars are only useful in a small area of sky and also seeing a shooting star live is wonderous. The patio was dark as no lights were shinning from either of my neighbours houses or from mine as the curtains were drawn and the kitchen light was off. As mentioned the sky was clear but in patches there was a hazy very light mist high in the atmosphere which gave a dull red glow which is to be expected as I live north of Birmingham and the light pollution is always there. I was confident I would see any shooting stars especially in the north where there is countryside. I set the chair in a position facing north by north east which I have now checked with a digital compass.

The Event
I settled down in the chair scanning the night sky hoping to see the shooting stars and waiting for my eyes to get their night vision which took about 6 to 8 minutes I must admit I was a bit disappointed that no shootings stars appeared. Then as I turned my head slightly to the right I saw the lights moving through the sky in a perfect chevron shape Although my drawing shows lines the shape was outlined in small dot like lights with a couple of gaps in the right wing of the chevron. MY feeling at the time was is it real so I shut my eyes and opened them the shape was still there and moving in the same direction. I then slapped my face but it was still there moving in a northerly direction by this time I was sitting up. I then stood and walked nearer my fence up looking up as the shape was moving away, again I squeezed my eyes shut and when I opened them it was still moving away then after a couple of seconds it just faded away. I was left with my mouth wide open wondering what had I just wittnessed. I must admit I was delighted that I had seen a UFO.I then rushed in the house found a pen and book and made a rough drawing of the shape I saw. I then scribbled notes about the experience which you have now read. My notes were very scrappy and I will keep them.I then sat down reflecting on what I had just seen and narrowed it down to two possibilities. The first one is it was man made, maybe an experimental stealth aircraft if so wow. The second it was a extraterestial craft. What I can’t reconcile why were the lights left on I do not think a craft from many light years away would leave the lights on for people to see. I did laugh to myself trying to envision the commander giving someone a bollocking for leaving the lights on. I am certain it was not an illusion

Solihill Railway Station – West Midlands – 10th December 2008

Location of Sighting: Solihull railway station
Date of Sighting: 10 December, 2005
Time; 11am-midday
Witness Name: Daniel
Witness Statement: I was waiting on the platform to catch the train to West Bromwich Albion to watch the Premier League game with Manchester City. The platform was very busy. Out of the corner of my eye I saw three silver objects, in perfect formation approaching. They looked as if they were made of tin-foil, and I initially assumed they were balloons, but the formation was so tight and crisp, and the motion was so controlled, deliberate and fast, that I have long since ruled out these being balloons carried on the wind. Both speed and altitude remained constant, and far too fast to be being blown on what was a very light breeze.

I remember the three were all distinctly different shapes, not especially aerodynamic-looking, but very “flying saucer-y”. Size-wise, I’d say each was roughly the size of a Mini, maybe smaller. What was especially strange was that not one other person appeared to notice them, even though they were passing directly over the railway line and I’d estimate the height to be well below 1,000ft. It felt as though everyone else’s eyes were suddenly glued to the platform and it was a demonstration just for me!

Genuinely no idea what they were. Probably a very logical explanation, but then again…
